Great composite of the leaf and asphalt; the colors somehow go well together; I like the second frame better; it contrasts nicely with the leaf and asphalt; AWESOME work!

The picture is great, but the presentation on both just isn't there.

The first one will work better if you fix the inner white border so it completely frames the images. It is a bit broken up.

lol, that was the point...it's more of a corner thing..

i probably won't do anything like this for normal use...because it takes too long to make..and isn't practical..

the second one looks pretty goot on the black background though..

could you edit it to show what you mean?

Sorry for the confusion. You are a talented photographer. Why get lazy with the presentation?

I'll be happy to do a couple edits for demonstration, but I'm about to leave with some friends to go dancing. WOHOO! I'll tinker with it tomorrow and let you see what I come up with.

lol, it isn't so much getting lazy..

but i have nearly every image on my website (i'm in the midst of building it) with the same type of border..

and it works with the background colors this way..

it's more professional to have them all matching too...

Here is one example. I decided to go with a black mat, but other colors will work well too. As you can see, with a buffer space, it really doesn't matter what color background the image is displayed on. All the attention remains on the image within the black mat.

This is an interesting discussion that leads me to this question.

The focus here was on 'printing' a mat around the picture. Do you have any comments/suggestions on a photo with a printed mat border vs. 'plain' photo framed physically in a cut mat?

well, this is just web presentation..
if i were to print, i would leave out the white border and text...
i think a 'real' mat looks better, but the upside to printing a 'mat' would be you can add text, and color easily..
